Census Records

All the censuses between 1841 and 1901 are now available on a number of fee-paying (Subscription or PayAsYouGo) sites including Ancestry.co.uk, FindMyPast.co.uk, thegenealogist.co.uk and genesreunited.co.uk. The 1911 census is available in full or in part on some of these sites. We are unable to advise on the choice of site since researchers' personal preferences will be influenced by the content and search facilities offered by each site. Some sites offer a free trial.

Access to the library edition of Ancestry.co.uk is widely available at most record offices, including Worcestershire Archives, and some libraries. You are advised to book time on their computers before making a visit.

A free-to-view site is being developed at freecen.org.uk for the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1891 censuses. Coverage of Worcestershire parishes is rather sparse at this time.

Census returns can usually be viewed at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' Family History Centres.

Directories

An extract from the Topographical Dictionary of England 1831 by Samuel Lewis:

MAMBLE, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of DODDINGTREE, county of WORCESTER, 6 miles (W. S. W.) from Bewdley, containing 386 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, with that at Bayton, in the archdeaconry of Salop, and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £9- 4.7 and in the patronage of the Crown. The church is dedicated to St. John. There are extensive coal-works within the parish. Sodington, the ancient seat of the Blounts, was destroyed by fire in the great civil war, by some troops of the parliament. What remained of it was taken down in 1807, when several curious Roman relics were discovered beneath the foundations, whence it seems probable that it was anciently the site of a Roman fort
